The Hills: New Beginnings made its season debut on June 24, 2019, and already Brody Jenner has caused controversy. Brody is being targetted and rebuked for calling Caitlyn Jenner a ‘he’.
While the MTV reboot was premiering, Brody the son of Caitlyn Jenner (previously Bruce Jenner) and Linda Thompson misgendered Caitlyn. They were at the dinner table with Frankie Delgado and Brody’s wife whose name was also Kaitlynn, who came up in the conversation. This shot was cut into an interview with Brody where he talked about his ‘father’ going through the change and becoming a woman; also mentioned the fact that she chose to take the name of Brody’s wife.
Brody expressed that he didn’t want to forget his dad becoming a woman. He had been dating Kaitlynn Carter for four years when his dad also chose to become Caitlyn. ” Two Caitlyns…” he said. Aside from the fact that Brody was trying to insinuate something when he was emphasizing on the ‘Caitlyn’ aspect of it all; Brody referred to Caitlyn as ‘he’ two times in a statement. People held this disregard for the proper terminology in contempt and took to Twitter to respond.
They wrote that aside from the fact that Brody is a “pile of trash” he also seems to enjoy purposely misgendering his father.
She, when transitioned from Bruce to Caitlyn, was very understanding of her kids and how they will refer to her. Kendall and Kylie are allowed to call her Dad as long as they refer to her as ‘she’. It’s been four years since the change but Brody still struggles to grasp the correct terminology.
